A.I.D.S. In Oman

The first-ever public show of a concerned campaign on this growing epidemic in the Sultanate of Oman has been released in the Oman Tribune on Monday (i.e.: yesterday). If this reflects anything, then it shows that the government through its health body - the Ministry of Health - is now adopting a more serious, transparent and very public strategy towards the ill-fated disease in Oman. Something that it had not adopted ever since the first case back in 1984.

Although the official facts and figures show a small amount of people of the entire population that have inhibited the disease; I am not one to trust such figures because I believe that by the time these figures were arrived at, the status-quo had changed, if ever so slightly.

It isn't the shame of admitting of having A.I.D.S. in the Sultanate of Oman, but the shame is not admitting it at all to try to help the individual.
